Saturday, April 15
Holy God, on this holy night, in your holy light, we see the story of our life in you: The earth is your perfect creation; we are saved in the ark during the flood; we are granted a reprieve from sacrifice; we escape the enemy army; we are enlivened by spring rains; we are instructed by Woman Wisdom; we are given a new heart; our bones are brought back to life; we enjoy a homeland; swallowed by the fish, we do not drown but are coughed up on dry ground; we wear party clothes; thrown into a furnace, we emerge untouched by the fire; we are risen with Christ, and although we do mistake Christ for the gardener, he appears to us and enlivens our faith. Send us forth, holy God, to be your light in the world.
